The Best And Last Book On Art Needlework

Click Here!

 

“WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN OVER 100 PAGES OF AUTHENTIC VICTORIAN INSTUCTIONS AND PATTERNS?”

You can begin recreating vintage needlework for yourself and those you love immediately! They are only a click away.

Dear Friend:

Do you love Victorian Needlework and love the idea of being able to have it in your home?

Would you like to learn vintage needlework techniques used in making Victorian needlework projects?

Do you like using authentic patterns and instructions to ensure the end result of all your hard work is truly Victorian?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, then this may very well be the most exciting message you’ve read all day. Here’s why…

The Last and Best Book on Art Needlework, originallyArt Needlework Book published by the Brainerd & Armstrong Company, New London, Connecticut in 1894-1895, is now available in digital form!

This is a fantastic Victorian needlecraft book. You’re sure to love it!

This book’s 120 pages are packed with black and white photos, descriptions, instructions and patterns. There are some great vintage advertisements, too! You’ve got to see this book to believe it.

This digital VINTAGE book has been enlarged to a full 8½” x 11″ – much easier to read than the original 7¾” x 9¾” printed in 1895. The pictures are much clearer and larger, too! This is a great help when trying to follow the instructions. The original book’s print size is so small that it is VERY hard on your eyes and it is easy to miss a step in almost any project you try. Now with the larger format, you can read and follow the directions with ease.

AND… because you can print out the project you are working on, you won’t have to fight keeping a book open to the desired page. Nothing drives me nuts faster than trying to work on a project and the page keeps flipping or the book won’t stay open. I’m sure you know what I mean. No more propping a book open with whatever you can find to keep it at the page you need! Your printout can be placed just about anywhere for easy reading.

These features alone make this digital book SO MUCH EASIER to use than a conventional book. Not only will your eyes thank you but you will find it much more relaxing and fun to actually work on the project.

But wait! There’s More…

(Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself!)This digital book is easy to navigate. Now there is a Table of Contents plus an Index (something not found in the Original) to help you find just what you are looking for. This book is NOT just a SCAN of the original pages. With scanned copies, when you enlarge the page to make it easier to read or see a picture more clearly, the print gets blurry and you are unable to read it. With this e-book you will find this is not an issue. It has been re-typeset (except for the advertisements) in larger type to produce top-notch clarity for ease of reading. All the pictures have been scanned, enlarged and meticulously digitally remastered so you can see as much detail as possible. They are often much clearer than the original pictures!

Must Have #Spring #Accessories #fashionpost #shopspring

Hello Pistachios!

Springtime is just around the corner and if you’re anything like me, you’re super excited for the nice weather, bright colors and pretty clothes. Already the weather is starting to get warmer and brighter. I’ve started pulling out the springtime dresses and getting my spring cleaning done- AND IT FEELS GREAT! I don’t know about you, but spring cleaning is a great excuse to purge my closet of clothes and accessories I haven’t worn in a while. [Don’t forget to donate your lightly worn clothes to charity.] So as my closet starts to look bare, I have to ask: What am I going to replace it all with?

In lieu of my daily fashion post, here is a list of my must have Spring accessories from my new favorite shop. Spring was inspired by some fashion boutiques in SoHo, New York City. It’s a great site because it gives you the experience of shopping at all these boutiques in one place. Plus there are some really cute accessories on there that I totally want… like, now!

As you can tell from my list, I’m all about the sunglasses, watches and headbands. I want it all!

😛

Happy Shopping!
